For example, they show little interest in foreign policy unless the country is in a war or international crisis. • 2. An attentive public of a minority. They are better educated and followed more abstract political concerns in the field of foreign policy. • 3. A policy and opinion elite of a few highly influential people. They are involved in politics, often professionally.
